I'm researching the same thing! We will be there the week of feb 1! I can't wait! I just want a nice white sandy beach and a cocktail! Hope someone can direct us, preferably where the entire ship won't be going as well!

There are no natural white sand beaches in St. Lucia - we are a volcanic island and our beaches range from light tan to black, and water color varies due to sand color.

If a beach and beach bar is what you want - head to Reduit beach in Rodney Bay. Chairs/umbrellas to rent, several restaurants along the beach (Spinnakers is excellent, especially for cocktails), watersports for hire, etc. Good option if all you want is a beach day. Or Spencer Ambrose's Beach break is good - speedboat to Sugar Beach (at base of Pitons, imported white sand), lunch, drinks, etc. Could be aoption.

In St. Lucia though, highly recommend some sightseeing instead. Our beaches don't compare to other places such as Caymans or Turks, but rather they are more rugged and dramatic (and small coves), while our scenery is second to none with the Pitons, rainforest, waterfalls, etc. Consider a sightseeing tour instead maybe.

Enjoy your day whichever you choose.

Bon jou 5Donna3 & katymara,

Hire a land taxi to Marjorie's Beach Bar & Restaurant at Cas En Bas Beach or head to Mr. Louisienne's $5 Beach... both in the north.

Or take a round-island tour to rarely-visited beaches in the south - Soufriere, Choiseul, Laborie, Vieux Fort...

Bless up! Paul
